Buffalo Sabres - New York Islanders: Fan Picks!


The two teams in the NHL who weren’t good enough to keep Thomas Vanek, the Buffalo Sabres and the New York Islanders, look to do battle tonight.

The winner gets to say, “We might not have been enough to keep Vanek, but we were more likely to keep him than you were!”

The losers gets to spend the remainder of the season skating with paper bags over their helmets.  Oh, the shame!

Boy, am I sarcastic today or what?  Oh well!

Let’s get down to brass tacks!

Questions to consider:

1. Let’s set the over/under at 5.5 tonight.  Will these two teams combine to score 5 or less, or 6 or more, huh?  5 points.

2. Pick any four players and watch your point total explode!  10 points for the player who scores the first goal,  5 points for any player who simply scores, 2  points for a second goal, and 20 points for a player who scores a hat-trick.  I’m DYING for this last one to actually happen!

3. Montreal plays tonight.  How many points does Thomas Vanek score?  5 points!  Yes, this is a real pick!  It’s okay – he’s in a a better place now.

4. Who wins, and what will the combined score be?  10 points for picking the winning team, and 14 for closest to combined score.

Let’s see what you’ve got – get your picks in, pronto!
